Benefits of Spine Physiotherapy:

Lasting relief from pain: Multiple aches and pains in the body could be due to a number of reasons. Be it an ankle injury while playing basketball or chronic lower back pain due to sitting for long hours at work; if the pain is affecting your everyday routine and activities, it definitely needs immediate attention. Regular physiotherapy sessions not only help mitigate or even out pain but also reduces dependency on painkillers that could be expensive or prove harmful in the long run.

Prevention from surgery: While surgery may be unavoidable in certain cases, physiotherapy can help eliminate the need for going under the knife, completely. Using a variety of treatments that include a combination of exercises and therapies, it assists in the elimination of pain from the root, heals injured tissues and facilitates painless & smooth mobility over a period of time. In case you have already undergone surgery, physiotherapy can help you recuperate and recover faster.

Improved mobility & balance: People who are recovering from a surgery or an injury, can take time to get back on their feet. Mobility can be a challenge and doing everyday chores can become an impossible task. In such cases, physiotherapy can prove to be of great help. It not only helps the body regain its lost muscle strength and improve coordination but also gains mobility to move around safely.

Manage age-related issues: With age, people tend to develop bones, joints or muscles related complications like osteoporosis and arthritis. To tackle these everyday aches and pains, regular physiotherapy can prove to be advantageous. It can also be opted for if a person has had a knee or hip replacement surgery and is looking to alleviate pain and recover faster.

Avoid dependency on medicines: While painkillers may provide instant relief from pain, the effect they can have on your kidneys and liver can prove to be fatal in the long run. Therefore, to address long-term pain issues, physiotherapy is considered to be a safe and more effective alternative to pain control medication.
